Time Date Stamp on finished Video

Does anyone know how to set the camera options so that the time and date appear on the final recording? I need to have a record of when the video was shot for future reference, and I can set the internal clock but cannot get it to show up on the tape when played after shooting. Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: Time Date Stamp on finished Video

The time and code is recorded all the time but the only way to put it on the display is to use the remote control. when plyback a tape press the time/code button(i think this is the right name of the button)on the remote. this camcorder has a different way to display the time than other cams and you have to do this every time you play something(feature does not stay on after shutting down the cam or ejecting tape)

LawMate PV-AC30 manual

To set the time / date stamp you'll need your remote control and you'll need to hook it to a TV with AV inputs. Be sure to correctly select the AV input the camera is plugged into. This is the most overlooked step that causes a lot of users frustration.

I've attached a YouTube video on how to accomplish the time/date setting.

Time/Date stamp doesn't show up...

this camcorder has a built in rechargeable battery for the memory of the date and time, if you do not use it for more than three months, it will discharge all the way; to recharge, you need to plug camera with ac power for 24 hours and the camera turned off. this should charge the internal battery complete.

How is the time/date stamp displayed on a copy

The time/date is 'stamped' onto the video during recording. The time/date stamp function can be turned on or off in the setup menu. If it was 'on' during recording, it will be displayed when played back. If it was turned off, it will not be seen on the recording.

How do I locate date/time?

Here is the link for the manual. There is detailed info around pages 20-25 on this topic.
On mine you go to Menu, Video Display, and then change the date time to on.

Most camers will always record the date/time stamp, whether or not it is displayed is this setting.
